Mine To Mount Edit

Almost 12 years to the day after founding her eponymous jewellery business, Sophie decided the time was right to probe a little deeper into where her gemstones come from - specifically the Tsavorites she loves working with so much. In 2022, she ventured deep into the Kenyan bush to meet the inspirational Miriam, the owner of Mimo Gems, a small-scale and ethical Tsavorite mine.

Inspired by her wonderful Kenyan experience, Sophie has designed three Art Deco-inspired engagement rings set with stones sourced from Miriam’s Tsavorite mines in Kenya. The three gems all display a different shade of green - a mint green cushion cut tsavorite; a bright, grass green emerald cut Tsavorite; a racing green emerald cut Tsavorite with a colour very close to that of an emerald - giving each of her One-Of-A-Kind engagement rings a very different personality.

All profits will be donated to Gem Legacy, a non-profit charity supporting vocational training, entrepreneurship, and community development in East African artisanal gem mining communities.
